"In October, 2014, our resistance to mass incarceration must reverberate across the country and around the world. There must be powerful demonstrations nationwide on October 22, the National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation. Throughout October there must be panels and symposiums on campuses and in neighborhoods; major concerts and other cultural expressions; ferment in the faith communities, and more—all aimed at taking the movement to STOP mass incarceration to a much higher level. October, 2014, must be a month that makes clear that thousands and thousands are willing to stand up and speak out today and to awaken and rally forth millions."

Message from Ferguson

You Need to Be in the House this Thursday, August 28 at 7 PM * Revolution Books is hosting this very, important event! 

This message was received by the Stop Mass Incarceration Network from people who volunteered to go to Ferguson.

August 25, 2014

Dear friends,

A number of us working to make October a powerful Month of Resistance to Mass Incarceration, Police 
Terror, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation have been come to Ferguson. We include
people from Albuquerque, Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Lexington (Kentucky), Oakland and New York. 

The people here pouring into the streets to demand justice for Michael Brown and persisting in the face of everything the authorities threw at them—tear gas, rubber bullets, sound cannons, curfews, the national guardsmen—is what drew us here. We came to stand with these brave people in this fight and to connect it to the nationwide struggle to stop horrors like this.

This struggle isn’t over. The killer cop hasn’t been indicted, the police chief who has presided over decades of murder and brutality targeting Black people remains in place and the authorities are still carrying out an “investigation” that’s more like a cover up.  Read More


A CALL TO ACTION:
COME TO
 FERGUSON THIS WEEKEND!

Read More   
If the police murder of Michael Brown, and now the second assassination of his character in the media, is just too much for you to take…
If the illegitimate police state response to the protests infuriates and alarms you and you don’t want to just accept this as “the way it is”…
If you are inspired that those who have been demonized and despised for years have now stood up and begun to raise their sights, and along with many, many people from all walks of life, have courageously stood their ground…
If you want a world without the endless chain of murders of Black and Brown youth by a system which has no place, no future for them…
If you want to see the cop who killed Michael Brown charged NOW…
Then come to Ferguson this weekend.
Be there to witness!
Be there to protest!
Be there to stand in solidarity with those who have stood up!
We say NO MORE! 
• And as we fight for justice in the case of Michael Brown, get ready for the October Month of Resistance to Mass Incarceration, Police Terror, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation.

Carl Dix, Arrested in Ferguson, Called “Outside Criminal Element,” Says Systematic Police Brutality & Murder is Criminal, Not Peoples' Protest

“There are no 'outsiders' in the struggle for justice and liberation,” said Carl Dix on his release from St. Louis County Jail this morning.

“The criminal actions in Ferguson come from the police who brutalize and murder people, not from people who have stood up and refused to accept that subjugation, or from people like myself who came from other cities to support them.”

Dix, of New York City, is a member of the Revolutionary Communist Party, and is the co-founder, with Dr. Cornel West, of the Stop Mass Incarceration Network.

“I came to Ferguson to stand with people who had poured into the streets after the murder of Michael Brown, and were demanding justice and refusing to silently suffer this abuse any longer. We want the cop who shot Michael indicted, Police Chief Jackson fired, and the authorities to stop hiding the information about Michael's murder. Because people defiantly refused to be stopped by curfews, National Guard deployment, and states of emergency, the whole world now knows about the unjust murder of Michael Brown.”

Dix, who says that he was extracted for arrest from a sidewalk crowd he was speaking to, was among 78 people, including media, arrested Monday as police declared protest “unlawful assembly,” and used tear gas, sound cannons, stun grenades, and pointed assault weapons at protesters holding their hands in the air.

Dix is available for interviews in Ferguson.

GOVERNOR DECLARES STATE OF EMERGENCY AND IMPOSES CURFEW IN FERGUSON
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon held a press conference in a Black church in Ferguson Missouri, one week to the day after Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson shot unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown to death. He did not announce the indictment of the cop who killed Michael Brown.  He did not announce the jailing of Darren Wilson.  He did not apologize for the local police demonizing Michael Brown and attempting to justify his murder by alleging he had stolen cigars from a store minutes before his murder.
